Silent Attack

(How Long ??)

by ESN

How many times do we have to be chained and dragged behind someones truck, 
      before we say enough is enough?  
How many of our people are we going to have sacraficed,   
      before we stand up and even begin to fight?  

When will we learn that the person in our reflection is not the enemy, 
     but the person out side it who is timely, 
                     to cause a deviation from God, so we can 
                              constantly be at odds. 

With each other, and focused on our Sistas and Brothas, 
       so we can stay at each others throats, 
                      killing each other over dirty 
                                looks, shoes, and coats,
                        while the world looks at us as a big joke!!

Then we wonder, why we don't get any respect!  
        Because we don't respect each other.  
                   While we're on one anothers back, 
            we don't realize we're slowly being picked off one by one during this,
